    The Consortium forums...

    The Consortium forums are a fairly significant gold making resource.

    A few avenues to consider that do not require significant startup capital:

    Hah, I thought that would happen. Just imagine the wave of outrage that will hit the WoW forums when Beta comes to an end and those people realise that it has all been for naught.

    Why has not being related to a world first got anything to do with whether or not it's unfair on the group in question? Such groups aren't probably competing for world firsts, they're competing with...

    No, of course the variance and the mean aren't the same thing. However, we're not comparing the two. Variance is something you'll discover attempt after attempt, week after week, modified by changes...

    Bandages had some fringe use during the beginning of the expansion - they were fairly important to our very early Chimaron strategy. However, with the scaling nature of gear, static bandages...

    Both you, the player, and the game itself have changed. 6 years - or whatever fraction of that you've been playing - is a long time to expect something to remain constant.

    In a raid group where people regularly experience DPS variances of 10-15% between attempts, let alone between raids, the nerf was not noticeable. And when I say not noticeable, I mean it is not...
